Poured very cloudy. Orange in color, aroma, and flavor. Had a bit of spiciness. Very subtle dry orange flavor. I'd drink it again.

All the flavors of a good Wit are there but it’s to dry and harsh. Zero complexity to this beer really makes me not want another one. It also reminds me of how much I miss Celis White

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2003
This is not a beer that I could finish an entire six pack of, that's for sure. Overall I am not much on fruity beers, but I did enjoy the orange/corriander flavors and a nice clean finish with a slightly sweet aftertaste.

Not a good beer. The coriander/orange peel flavor is unpleasant at best. The beer warranted it rating only because it was fairly interesting and somewhat fresh-tasting.It's not a beer which one could drink many of. There are very few beers which I can't finish, this was one.

AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 15, 2003
On tap: Pretty good overall. White head, mostly diminishing. Hazy color, amber orange. Pretty sweet and easy to drink. Fair amount of carbonation. I'd drink again.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2003
Slightly hazy light orange appearance. Citrusy and lightly yeasty nose. Body is spritzy and sweet and malty with a touch of hops. Finishes sweet and candyish. Not a standout example of the style.

Had this at the Coors Brewery. Couldn’t believe that I was drinking this type of beer at the Coors Brewery. When it was poured, I was truly impressed with the golden/rustic look to it with the crisp white head. Very nice aroma. Hardly any aftertaste.

Darkover (1518) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 7, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2003 Golden color with a small white head. Peppery aroma and flavor

Diablokev (153) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2003
Aroma is light and sweet with a hint of fruit. Appearance is a foggy orangeish, pale gold. The flavor was something I really liked with hints of friut and very little aftertaste. The beer goes down great and is very easy to drink. I liked this one a lot.

joet (2224) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - JAN 1, 2003
Amazingly good for a Coors product. Light bodied, color is good but not glowing, miniscule coriander aroma, a bit thin, texture is slightly slick, and not bad at all.
